Do you have an aftermarket tune? Seems like the bike would be awfully twitchy going 45 in 2nd or 3rd with that high of an RPM. At least to me, the bike has plenty of torque in 5th cruising at 45 mph and just over 3k rpms if I'm recalling correctly.In town up to 45mph generally no higher than 3rd for both instant throttle response and engine braking,4th up to 55 and reserve 5th and 6th for open highway.
Listen to the bike...… it will tell yaSee topic, I'm used to being in lower gears from my previous motorcycles but I've caught snippets of information that people cruise (let's say at 70kmph/approx 45mph) in high gear.
When do you shift up? When do you shift down during a typical ride?
